A Gallimaufry is a hodge podge or a medley of things and this beautiful free pattern from designer Jan Eaton is a wonderful flowing medley of lace. The pattern can be downloaded from Ravelry and is an interesting knit. Not too difficult but not dull either, plus the charts are clear and the instructions are well written.

I used a yarn from The Uncommon Thread who specialise in luxury yarns which they hand dye to a wonderful spectrum of deep and luscious colours. This one is their BFL Sock which is soft but with a wonderful lustre and the colour is one of my favourites called Bassenthwaite. I used about 128g in total so needed two 100g skeins but the leftovers will not be wasted.

I did knit mine on a smaller needle because I wanted more of a long wide scarf effect than a wrap. I am so happy with the result.
